Futuristic, Cyber-Punk RICHARD III Opens This May At Synetic
Directed by Synetic's Founding Artistic Director Paata Tsikurishvili, Richard III will examine the collision of the physical and cyber worlds, and the destruction of human life as the world grows more automated and less personal.
What happens when technology obscures our own humanity and the humanity of those around us?
Highlighting the terrifying extremes made possible through the abuse of modern technology, the 14th installment in Paata Tsikurishvili's Wordless Shakespeare Series will explore King Richard III's rise to power in a movement-driven and action-packed display of stunning physicality and powerful visuals.
Tickets start at $35 and can be purchased online at www.synetictheater.org or via phone at 866-811-4111.
